Would-be Walnut Creek armored truck robber flees after guard pulls gun
A man tried to rob an armored truck security guard Tuesday morning before running away, police said.
The robbery attempt took place as the armored truck was parked near the intersection of South California Boulevard and Botelho Drive. The story was first reported by the blog Claycord.com, which obtained its information from a police radio broadcast.
At 10:30 a.m., the truck was parked as the guard was making a money pick-up at a business, Lt. Tim Barrett said. A man approached the guard and demanded he give him money. Instead, the guard went to pull out a firearm, and the would-be robber got into a white Dodge Caravan and drove away.
He did not appear to be armed, Barrett said. Police did not have a detailed description of him.
